ponting should really move himself down the order ..

both he and gili are in poor form.. and when both of them get out in short order it can spark a collapse like we saw in the last match.
 
Here's HRG. "Ricky Ponting became the first batsman in the world to aggregate 10000 ODI runs while batting at number three, when he was on four in this innings. Ponting had an aggregate of 9996 runs prior to this game. . The next best is by Jacques Kallis who has 5917 runs." ------- from crapinfo. Congrats to Punter.

He is on a mini rampage here. 21 off 21. Lankans seem to have put him back on track by making the "will target him" comment !!

I just hate that late cut that Ponting played. I use to get out to the same shot during my league cricket days.
 
OZ 2/124, Gilly 78 Pup 16. Hopefully Gilly can hang on and make a ton in his last appearance at the WACA.
 
Aussie are well set to get around 325 !!

If Gilly gets stuck, may be even more.

BTW, Murali hasn't been threatening so far in this tourney !!
 
260 is a more realistic score. No way they'll get near 300. Not with James Hopeless next to bat!
 
I had been waiting for a 200 from Gilchrist in an one day match for the last 10 years.if ever there was an occasion befitting that, it would be today. hope i dont jinx him.
What an entertainer!
 
Gilchrist - what a legend eh. I'm really going to miss him when he retires - he was someone special. :(

well Gilly is still in but Symo's wicket was definitely very important
 
wow! That was about as easy as they get.

SL catching(dropping) like Pakistan today

quite uncharacteristic of an Australia we know!...reminds me of India though...
Gentlemen..we're witnessing an Aussie decline... t'was bound to happen at some point...REcent performances seem to point to the unthinkable..
 
Oh Symmo Oh Symmo. seemes you have cheated again lolz.
 
Symonds takes one of the best catches you will see.

It must really hurt posters like Dhoni183 when they see such brilliant fielding like that from an Australian.

And the world believes (or better knows) its the Aussies who have been whining for little things in recent times (or better since long)!!

So Aussies are out of water, whining and also drowning in their own tears ??

Close but no cigar, Dhoni183 wishes his team was Australia. :))) :)))
 
I simply don´t understand what you are upto, Fish. I thought he grassed it, that´s all! You can´t take it, close the window or just close your eyes whenever you see my post in this thread - that´s the best for you.

The catch was certainly controversial. Tony Greig wanted to discuss it but Mark Taylor was too keen to talk about ongoing series, weather, players, teams, women cricket etc ;-) .

Are you sure, his knees were touching the grass and the knee bone is conected to the thigh bone and the thigh bone is connected to the backbone and the backbone is connected to the shoulder bone....... :))) :))) :))) :)))
 
Can Kumar ''Class'' Sangakarra pull this off by himself?

Hang on, is Rudi umpiring?
